    Hi.

    According to Yoast SEO it’s advised to use an H1 heading in a post. Every time I write a post this suggestion comes up.

    However, when I add an H1 heading it’s right below the title of the post, making it seem a bit weird having the same title/heading 2 times, one over the other.

    Is it because the title of the page also works as an H1 heading and Yoast SEO simply doesn’t recognize that?

    Since having 2 H1 headings is bad for SEO I’d like to know how to solve this so it looks clean and still follows the general SEO advice.

    Any solution for this?

    I hope it makes sense. Thanks.

    All the best!

    @zerolizer0: H1 Heading two times? Please post in your site url. I checked the theme on our server and only one H1 heading is displaying.
    Let me know further.

    Hi Mahesh.

    Sorry I see now that the last phrase was easy to misunderstand.

    Yes, there is only one H1 heading, what I assume would also be called the title?

    But the Yoast SEO plugin suggests adding an H1 heading on every post. But by doing so I have the H1 heading I’ve added just below the title of the post.

    Having the same title/heading twice looks a bit odd so that’s why I’m asking if the title works as an H1 heading? If so, that means the Yoast plugin just doesn’t recognize the title as an H1 heading?

    Not sure if that made more sense. But take a look at this link http://www.liberatingthespirit.com/ways-save-money-on-transportation/

    In order to optimize SEO Yoast suggest adding an H1 heading with the keyword as I’ve done in this post. But then the heading is right below the title.

    What’s the solution to this?

    @zerolizer0: I checked the page mentioned above and I don’t understand why you’ve again added the H1 tag and repeated the Post title as it is already there. Can you please clarify more on this?

    Haha I think I’ve misunderstood something. I guess I wasn’t reading the wording in the Yoast plugin properly. Sorry for the confusion and thank you for your help!

    I also reported the same problem to them. I’m using SEMrush SEO tool and It tells me that I have 2 <H1> tag on every post (Not Good for SEO) I don’t give a [email protected]#$ what Matt Cutting said. I should only have one H1 tag per page and it should be the heading I created. I ask them to fix in the next update.

    @promomusic: If you want to have only one H1 tag, you can change it by building child theme and editing it. You can find more details on creating child theme HERE.. I recommend you to hire a customizer. Let me help you if any problem.

    Mahesh
